Get up and run the risk of being killed. Nasrudin got up. When he tried to reason with the drunks, one snatched his blanket and both ran away.

The Mulla was too quick for him, and there was a violent struggle. Eventually, Nasrudin got his man down on the ground. Let that little man get up, and give him a chance. Mulla Nasrudin was wandering in a graveyard.

He stumbled and fell into an old grave. Beginning to visualize how it would feel if he were dead, he heard a noise. It flashed into his mind the at the Angel of Reckoning was coming for him; though it was only a camel caravan passing by. The Mulla jumped up and fell over a wall, stampeding several camels.

The cameleers beat him with sticks. He ran home in a distressed state. His wife asked him what was the matter, and why he was late. Interested inspite of herself, she asked him what it was like. Mulla Nasrudin was spending some of his hard-earned cash on a luxury cruise and was given a table with a Frenchman.

After this had happened at every meal for three days, Nasrudin was getting fed up, and told a fellow traveller about it. Someone stopped him and asked: Why are you dressed like that, Mulla, has someone died? Choosing one that suited his needs, he asked the price. Mulla Nasrudin asked his neighbour one day the cause of his depression. The psychiatrist drew a triangle. My fee is ten guineas per session. A psychiatrist was called out to do a domiciliary visit.

He was met at the door by Mulla Nasrudin, the man of the house. Just leave it to me. Mulla Nasrudin had been watching a mental hospital patient nailing a fence and had been puzzled by the fact that the latter was discarding a large proportion of the nails, throwing them away with growing exasperation. Eventually, the Mulla could contain his curiosity no longer. Why do you keep throwing them away?

Yet I have this delusion that I am a violent mass murderer. I am just rehearsing one of my sermons.

Publisher Description

Mulla Nasrudin and his wife went to Israel for their holidays, and visited a night club in Tel Aviv. A comedian was on the bill who did his whole act in Hebrew. Mulla Nasrudin with a new hat on was going down the road. Suddenly it started raining.

In order to save his new hat, he picked up his dress and covered his new head gear. Many pedestrians were surprised to see the Mulla act thus. Mulla Nasrudin stopped his wife from jumping off a bridge. A group of people passed. Mulla heard them whisper: "What times are these? Look at those two, have they no mercy on the poor animal? Another group of people passing by and seeing this comment: "What times are these?

Look at this man. His poor son with his frail body has to walk while he at his best age is riding the donkey! A third group of people seeing this remark: "What times are these? This young man is riding the donkey while his sickly old father has to walk! Another group passing by point to them, laughing: "Look at these idiots. They have a donkey and they are walking all the way to the market!

Preaching[ edit ] Mulla preached on Fridays at the village mosque. One day, having nothing to preach about, he asked the congregation: "Do you know the subject I am going to discuss today?

How could you not know given the events of the past week? Next Friday he went up the minbar and asked: "Do you know the subject of my sermon today? There is no point in telling you what you already know", said Mulla and left. On the third Friday he ascended the minbar and asked: "Do you know what I am going to speak about today? It is easy to manipulate an audience that trusts you implicitly. The correct answer is not always the opposite of the wrong answer. It is impossible to teach those who are completely ignorant, and it is impossible to teach those who believe they already know the answers.

The real way toward wisdom is for the learned ones to pass on what they know to ones who are willing and able to learn. Ageless Strength[ edit ] Mulla was once boasting about his ageless strength.

I couldn't move it then and I can't move it now!

It's all relative. One must carefully choose the standards one measures oneself by. If the standard is too high it will never be achieved. All of life's woes come from comparison. The limitations of the self to effect the physical world remain relatively stable regardless of age or status. The Great Pumpkin[ edit ] Nasreddin Hodja was lying in the shade of an ancient walnut tree. His body was at rest, but, befitting his calling as an imam, his mind did not relax.

Looking up into the mighty tree he considered the greatness and wisdom of Allah. Behold the stout stem and strong limbs. They could easily carry the great pumpkins that grow from spindly vines in yonder field, vines that cannot begin to bear the weight of their own fruit.

Should not walnuts grow on weakly vines and pumpkins on sturdy trees? God is merciful! He has rearranged nature only to spare my life. Man is unable to understand just how complex nature actually is.

To achieve the fruit spiritual perfection one needs to be humble as the big fruit grow on the vines which are on the ground. Tall trees cannot bear the weight of big fruit and hence only produce walnuts. What we think should be best, and what really is best, are often very different things. To compare what is and what should be is always a fallacy, as it oversimplifies that which we, as mortals, cannot understand.

One day a fool asked Nasrudin "is God true? I didn't do it," shrugged Nasrudin. Truth is found in yourself, not in others. Do not look to men for Truth.

They may be even more confused than you are. Telling a lie[ edit ] One day Nasruddin and his friends decided to play a joke on the people in a village. So Nasruddin drew a crowd, and lied to them about a gold mine in a certain place.

When everybody ran to get their hands on the gold, Nasruddin started running with them. When asked by his friends why he was following them, he said "So many people believed it, that I think it may be true! Is it not strange they cannot agree on the nature of something they eat every day, yet are unanimous that I am a heretic?

People rush to judgment in matters of import. Different ways of seeing the same thing are not necessarily incompatible. People are clueless and disorganized.

Mulla Story

Their judgements means nothing. Nasreddin and the Sultan's Horse[ edit ] One day, while Nasreddin was visiting the capital city, the Sultan took offense to a joke that was made at his expense. He had Nasreddin immediately arrested and imprisoned; accusing him of heresy and sedition.

Nasreddin apologized to the Sultan for his joke, and begged for his life; but the Sultan remained obstinate, and in his anger, sentenced Nasreddin to be beheaded the following day. When Nasreddin was brought out the next morning, he addressed the Sultan, saying "Oh Sultan, live forever!

You know me to be a skilled teacher, the greatest in your kingdom. If you will but delay my sentence for one year, I will teach your favorite horse to sing. But if by the end of that year you have not taught my favorite horse to sing, then you will wish you had been beheaded today. The Sultan may come to repent of his anger, and release me. He may die in battle or of illness, and it is traditional for a successor to pardon all prisoners upon taking office.

He may be overthrown by another faction, and again, it is traditional for prisoners to be released at such a time. Or the horse may die, in which case the Sultan will be obliged to release me.

Things are rarely as hopeless as they appear. Beware of offending the powerful, regardless of how much they deserve it. Clever words well-timed may succeed where reason and moral appeals fail. Nasreddin or rather, Juha and the Poem[ edit ] This story comes from the Arab version of the character, who is known as Juha. At some point in time, the Emir got it into his head that he was a poet.

After working for many days and nights, he completes the poem, and asks Juha, a noted scholar of poetry, if he would come to the recital. Juha of course could not refuse. After the Emir had completed reciting the poem, he asked Juha for his opinion.

Oblivious, the Emir said, "Of course, that's why I brought you here! Put this man in prison. Shortly after Juha had completed his sentence, the Emir called upon him to attend a recital of another poem.

When the Emir finished reciting, Juha immediately rose to his feet and started for the door. He therefore set soldiers at all entrances. The soldiers were under orders to hang those who lied about their purpose for wishing to enter. The Mullah Nasreddin saddled his donkey and rode to the city.

At the gate a guard stopped him and asked his purpose in wishing to enter and warned him that a lie would result in his being hanged. Nasreddin's keys[ edit ] One late evening Nasreddin found himself walking home. It was only a very short way and upon arrival he can be seen to be upset about something. Alas, just then a young man comes along and sees the Mullah's distress. Would you help me search them? I know I had them when I left the tea house.

There's Nasrudin, and he's spooning yoghurt into the water! You know you can't make yoghurt that way! This later turns out to be relevant to the plot. Here's the episode in question, which I hadn't seen before: Nasrudin is scheduled to preach in the mosque. He stands up in front of the congregation, and asks "So, do you know what I'm going to say? I'd just be wasting my time. The next week, he stands up and asks them the same question. This time, the congregation all claim they do know what he's going to say.He published several collections of Mulla Nasruddin stories in English.

But it was not to be. Ignore the Braying[ edit ] A neighbor comes to Nasreddin Hoja. Because he had been fasting all day long, for Ramadan, he was also quite hungry. Mullah went to the tent of Timur. I'd just be wasting my time. When asked by his friends why he was following them, he said "So many people believed it, that I think it may be true!

His singing may have been awful, but at least it worked!
